Not the General Election Day One Friday
Down to the count at Eccles Rec. starting at 11am. Takes a couple of hours but we have some brilliant results taking 17 of the 20 seats up for election with the tories getting three and the Lib Dems nil! Holding Eccles,Langworthy,Cadishead and Irlam-seats we lost last time and gaining Weaste,Claremont and Swinton South gave us a brilliant result and means we won every ward in the Salford and Eccles constituency. It was a great team effort and we have lots of young people involved and committed. Steve, a student who joined our branch at 16 was the agent in Claremont which we won by 50 votes and my son Michael was the agent in Eccles which we held with a stunning majority of nearly 600.
Then it was off to the pub over the road then home to catch up on sleep,tidying up and the Telly.
